Ten militants were killed in the latest operation, while 24 others were killed two days earlier, he added. NATO's media office in Kabul confirmed the operation in Zheri. In a statement, the alliance said militant hideouts were targeted in the Ghariban area. It said a number of militants were killed in precision air raids.
